Marriage is overrated, too much headache – Halima Abubakar

Nollywood actress, Halima Abubakar, has given her opinion on marriage even as she insisted she will not get married.

The actress suggested the need for people to know themselves in and out before thinking of getting married.
Recall that the 30-year-old actress had said people only pretend that marriage is rosy.
On her Instagram page @halimaabubakar, the chubby actress sometime last month wrote, “I don’t want to ever get married. Those in it are miserable, forget the smiling; go in happy, you become sad just like that. I did not ask you not to marry, if you are happy then amazing. My opinion should not affect you,” the actress added.
However, in an interview with Encomium, the actress says marriage is overrated and too much of a headache.
According to her, her marital status or lack thereof is nobody’s business.
She said, “Yes, because marriage has been overrated. It’s unnecessarily over rated. It’s just too much of headache with how things are now. Even ordinary relationship is a huge burden, huge headache and heartbreaking, let alone marriage.
“When you can’t stand each other as boyfriend and girlfriend, how would you live together under the same roof when you get married?
“People need to know themselves seriously. When I say seriously, I mean spiritually before getting married. People only know themselves physically, not spiritually, so they end up getting bored with each other.
“And they will say they don’t want to get divorce because of what society would say after investing so much on the marriage.
“They stay in that marriage and later it may become very irritating and they start fighting. Before they know it, everything becomes violent. You hear people say all sorts of things.
“You’re the one who allowed people to get to you and start telling you you’re getting old. You’re the one allowing them to convince you that you’re getting old, you need to get married. Everyone will surely get old. Who won’t get old?
“So, when people say I am getting old, get married, I would tell them that’s the only thing they know. People carry marriage like a flag.”
Asked if she will be getting married soon, Halima said, “No.
“People should only try to be nice about marriage to make me interested in it. Don’t tell me actresses don’t stay in marriage.
“Olu Jacobs and Joke Silva have been married for long and they’re still in the marriage. Nothing happened to their union.
“Omotola and her husband have been married for long; they’re still very much together. She got married at a young age which is good.
“What I am trying to say is that going into marriage needs a lot, you don’t just go into it. My elder sister got married at 26 and she’s doing fine in the marriage with her husband.
“Now, tell me why won’t I want a family like that? But these days, people are just too much into social media that’s why marriages are crashing.
“Marriage these days is not based on happiness and genuine love. Let me ask, who is that poor person that has married a billionaire son? So, why won’t marriage crash when it’s not based on happiness and genuine love?”
